1) I'd like to pull my Cox mail to a local server so that I can access
it from multiple PCs in the house, maintaining a single mailbox and not
creating havoc. I've been looking at getmail (POP3 fetch) and Courier
(local IMAP) to do this. Has anyone done something similar? If there
are any caveats here, I'd like to know before I jump in.
2) We currently have years worth of email stored locally. We use
Thunderbird as our client. I don't know what format it uses, but I'm
trying to find out if there's a way to convert this to the maildir
format so I can drop it all out on the server.
Any thoughts/ideas/suggestions appreciated.
